If You Have A Mood Disorder, You May Now Be Eligible For A COVID Booster - HuffPost
Oct 15, 2021 51 secs

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has included some mood disorders on its list of underlying conditions that can increase a person’s risk of becoming severely ill if they are infected with COVID-19.

For months, experts have implored the CDC to include certain mental health disorders on its list of underlying conditions.

Other studies have found that people with mood disorders such as depression have a similar risk of hospitalization and death from COVID when compared to those with underlying health issues such as diabetes and cancer — though, again, why that is remains unclear.

Mental health groups say the CDC’s decision to include certain mood disorders and schizophrenia to its list of underlying conditions is both welcome and overdue.

“Now that some mental health conditions have been added to the CDC’s list of underlying conditions, we recommend those living with these conditions speak with their health providers about whether a booster shot is appropriate,” Schroeder Stribling, president and CEO of Mental Health America, said in a statement to HuffPost.
